Belington Elementary School2

I would not want my children at this school again, I'm sure some of the teachers can do a good job; but other employees including the principal and counselor I was not impressed with, they are more concerned with protecting their buddies than the children, was laughable in the case of my children the ineptitude and straight refusal to do the duties of their jobs, must be nice to pick and choose, unfortunately it is only the children that suffer, but hey at least they can be loyal to their friends, that they put first before the safety of the children and their professional integrity, I would advise any parent to go to that school with their eyes wide open and find out about the teachers your children have, is amazing how the Union will protect teachers who in any other profession would not have a job for being caught doing such behavior?
This is a quality elementary school for the area. The children are safe and the environment is worm and inviting. The staff all seem to have the best interests of the children at heart. Your children will learn a great deal and develop a love for learning as long as you stay involved in the process. These is an alarmingly low level of parent participation at the school, even though opportunities do exist. Over all, this is a great school!
I've had 2 kids graduate from this school and 2 still in it with one more yet to enter. Academics are questionable at best, school lunches are horrible, sometimes you get a great teacher and other teachers shouldn't be teaching at all. It is safe as in you must check in at the office and can't get in the school otherwise. So the kids are safe from outsiders, however the kids inside bully, badly starting in kindergarten and not much is ever done about it.
